McClatchey Reporter: Yes, Jim Asher Told Me to Look Into Obama's Alleged Kenyan Connection

He doesn't say that Asher told him Blumenthal suggested this avenue of investigation, but why would Asher tell him that? A reporter doesn't disclose to a much-more-junior reporter what confidential source is pushing a tip on him.

This is certainly a mile of confirmation for Asher's story -- many of the doubters, both the acknowledged Hillary supporters and the unacknowledged NeverTrump Hillary supporters-- knocked the story down by claiming "Well where's the reporter who looked into this, huh?"

First of all: McClatchy ran the story on their own former editor's statement. They would have said something if their investigation had uncovered the fact that no one at McClatchy ever looked into this.

So, the very fact the story ran at all strongly suggested -- more or less proved, for those of us not shaking pom-poms for Hillary -- that McClatchy had, in fact, verified this part of the story.

Second of all: Well, you were wrong, guys. Again.

But keep spinning for your gal.

Still vigorously spinning for Hillary: Politico, naturally, and even more naturally biased hack Blake Housnell, who plays stenographer for Blumenthal, and credulously relays Blumenthal's claim that he didn't push Birtherism, no, certainly not, he merely urged reporters to look into Obama's connections to Kenya.

What?

Housnell pushes this crap despite his own reporting disclosing the fact that two McClatchy reporters say they were well aware that Asher and Blumenthal were talking during this period -- and then Asher, just coincidentally, sent one on a wild goose chase to Kenya.

I guess, like Ahmad Khan Rahami's motive, we can just never know for sure.
